Templates: Inspirational Booklet and Freebie

Are you new to digital scrapbooking? Or have you been digi-scrapping for a while and are just discovering templates? Liz has a unique new product available today, perfect for the new template scrapper or for someone who is just learning about Liz's products.  But before we begin  I just want to announce the winner of Tuesday's giveaway, it was Stephanne (read more about it in the comments on Tuesday's post)! She won a $25 gift certificate to Hooked on Adorable plus my new Inspiration Booklet and Temps!

First, let me give you a peek at what you get, and then I'll get into the details.  As always, new products are 20% for the first week.


Your download contains 11 Digital Templates and a PDF Booklet showing you each of the 11 templates in use.  Not only are there examples of the templates used "as-is," but there are also examples showing you how you can modify your templates to get more use from them - by rotating them, or by using a portion of a template to create a completely new look!  The beautiful example layouts were made the Scrap Orchard Honeybees, so you know these are going to be a great source of inspiration.

The eleven templates are a mix of 7 older templates from Liz's store and 4 new templates exclusive to this product.  Four of the templates can be put together to make two double-page spreads.  The templates Liz chose for this collection make up a very good mix of her style; if you are new to Scrapping with Liz, this set is a great representation of the quality Liz delivers - with features such as text paths, scalloped paper clipping layers and fancy shapes.

In your download are PSD, TIFF, and PNG versions of the templates.  Download the files that are appropriate for your software.

Liz has several template tutorials here on her blog.  The Scrap Orchard Forum is also a great resource for learning techniques.  Here are a few links to get you started.
Once you start using templates, you are likely to fall in love with them.  Most of us have!  Almost all of my layouts start with a template, and even though you are starting with a foundation made by someone else, I still think your finished layout is all your own - with your own style and personality.

It can be hard for me to get focused when I look at the blank page, so I love templates because they give me an organized starting point.  I might stick very closely to the original design, or I might delete portions and take it to a more minimal look, or I might add to it and take it in a completely different direction.  When you want to finish a product quickly, templates can also help with that.  It's all up to you!  Templates are a great tool for scrappers, and if they are new to you, I hope you will give this product a try.

Here is your freebie!

    So cute in it's entirity. I love the rectangular shapes for the photos. Thank you for this wonderful template because I would be lost. I am layout illiterate, but this is good therapy for me in my recuperation. Either way, I am having a fun time. Love!

    Please excuse the deleted prior comments. I had background gibberish from my speaking software at the beginning of the post.
